the vice president done? new jersey governor chris christie is t could make a casee handled sandy well but what else? our pal carl rove on the person of the year list. why? also cy on the list. we dealt with him yesterday. you know what? i'm voting for cia. he is my guy. i want him to be person of the year because that would send "time" magazine a message stop screwing around. if barack obama doesn't win person of the year i will be surprised. yes "time" nominated mitt romney but he he has no chance. neither does hillary clinton who is somewhat responsible for the libyan mess. bill clinton is on the list. i would vote for jay-z over the president. no to bill clinton sea brilliant man. why would he be person of the year? for what. you can see we are living in a very shallow time in america. pardon the pun. truth is, we have very few dynamic leaders in this country where is abe lincoln when we need him. like 1860 america is a divided nation there is a culture war raging. we need a person to bring us together to solve complicated problems and stop all the nonsense. lincoln could have done

christie, together on superstorm sandy. that's what they want more of. i think members of congress -- >> there's no chris christie in washington. michael, there's no chris christie that's circling around washington, d.c., right now that actually needs something from the president. christie needed stuff from the president and fema and wanted it directly to get to his people. of course they're going to play nice. >> i would like to think, though, the president was elected with a mandate. i can't say that. he doesn't control the house. he didn't have the house before. he doesn't have the house now. so compromise has got to be the word of the day. i think that that's what the constituents of these members most want. >> all right. zachary, senator durbin says he could see $400 billion in entitlement cuts. democratic aides telling politico most of it is going to come from medicare in part by raising the retirement age. a move that more than two-thirds of americans oppose. that's according to the latest "washington post" poll. this is something that democrats are going to have a hard time
in congress about aid for victims of superstorm sandy. clearly, he's got an interest in 2016, and then there's jeb bush. aa number of the people you just mentioned have very interesting ideas about immigration and about expanding the universe of the party. not all of them but certainly bobby jindal and jeb bush and marco rubio. >> immigration and education are the two places you'll see these wan-to-be future leaders break from it. >> that does it for us for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." tomorrow on the show maria cantwell and roger altman joining us. follow us online and on twitter @mitchellreports. hi, tamron. >> grae to see you. in the next hour we follow developing news. president obama has new words of speaker boehner and the republicans in his first tv interview since the election and since the fiscal cliff stalemate started. no deal until republicans drop the opposition to raising tax rates on the wealthy. that's the president's message. we'll play the interview for you, parts of it, and also hear from democratic congressman adam schiff. from the president shooting down sp
